TDK to shut down DVD media plant

Posted by iMark - 2006-03-11

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Japan-based TDK Corp. said Wednesday (March 8) it would shut down its recordable media plant at its European subsidiary, TDK Recording Media Europe in Luxembourg.

The shutdown, slated to occur by the end of May, completes the company’s plans to withdraw from manufacturing recordable CD and DVD products. TDK phased-out recordable media manufacturing in Nagano, Japan at the end of 2005.

TDK reported that a sharp drop in market prices of recordable CDs and DVDs and higher material costs led to the decision to withdraw from the recording media business.

TDK will continue R&D and manufacturing of blue laser discs in Japan, as well as strengthen its data storage tape business.
